Know which handle was used for resizable

I have an area that is using jQuery's .resizable();

The handles are e,se,s.

I have different functions I need to perform based on the which handle was used for resizing. I tried the browser event object by using but it returns the element being resized, not the handle.

Does any one have any ideas of how to know which handle is being used?

Thanks is advance!
